The closure will stand until such time the repairs are completed and periodic water sampling carried out.
No recreational activity is allowed at the Uvongo lagoon and beach.

As a contractor has started repairs to a sewer pipe in Pioneer Road, Uvongo, there is a possibility of sewage entering the Uvongo river and polluting the lagoon and beach.

“In light of this, it is recommended that the Uvongo beach and lagoon be closed for recreational purposes as a precautionary measure to prevent any health-related illnesses,” said Ugu spokesman, France Zama.

The closure will stand until such time the repairs are completed and periodic water sampling carried out.

The public will be informed when the beach and lagoon will be re-opened for recreational purposes.
Disaster Management Services will assist with the display of signage and Ray Nkonyeni Municipality lifeguards will ensure that no swimming is allowed at the beach or lagoon.
